About the show:
Mzansi Magic premiered a new drama series entitled, Abomama Bomthandazo on 8 April 2018.
According to Mzansi Magic the show is about ‘four religious women, who try to turn tragedy into something positive, get sucked into the world of crime and violence when they are forced to turn their Stokvel into a money-laundering scheme.’
The story takes place in Soweto and Ferndale. The female leads around which the story is centred are named Mapule, Fumane, Dora and Tshidi.
MAPULE is a soft-spoken well-meaning woman who is dragged into troublesome waters by her brother, Thabang.
FUMANE is the pastor’s wife. She is well-respected and loved by the community. However, she is tempted by power.
DORA is a jolly, former alcoholic with a problematic spending impulse. She has a dark secret.
TSHIDI is a suburban wife who is married to a reputable doctor. Her past haunts her however, as she is a ‘former ghetto queen’.
The noteworthy cast includes the likes of Kenneth Nkosi, Masechaba Mtolo, Sekoati Tsubane, Gabriel Mini and veteran favourite, Jerry Phele.
The leads are played by four formidable actresses.

“#AbomamaMzansi is a lot 😂😂😂
– The pastor had a child outside his marriage who is a tsotsi.

– Same church ladies (& pastor’s wife) killed the pastor’s tsotsi son (who was trying to take the money) & buried him. I am Shook. ”
